So the long and short of it is, I'm pretty sure that Meiryo UI is messed up or missing or something, and instead Office 2011 on my Mac has decided that it'd be totally cool to use Mart Futomaru Gothic instead for most Japanese text display, including all over Excel. Is there some way to reinstall just the font(s) or maybe clear the Office font cache?

I stupidly let a web hosting account expire without backing up and transferring my site to my new server. I'm talking to the host to try to get access to my data (fingers crossed), but in case that does not work out: Is there a way to efficiently harvest Google's entire cache of a specific domain? Something else I should consider? I would like to act fast on this, and I don't have any programming/tech-fu skills.

Help me set up a simple 100% caching forward proxy for my home. I dicked around with squid and then apache+mod_proxy/mod_cache yesterday afternoon, and while they proxy beautifully
, they don't seem to have much cache hit even on static content- almost or completely 0% cache hit. [more inside]

Is there a way to export my Google Desktop cache of webpages into PDF or plain text files? I frequently update my computer and although I include my Google Desktop indexes in my backups, for all practical purposes the browsing history is lost since there is no method to import a Google Desktop Index (You can restore an entire backup, but not import one into another). I'd like to be able to keep a PDF or plain text history of every web page I've visited.
I've installed the PDFCreator toolbar, which allows one-click saving of a webpage, so I can save my history from here on, but I'd love to reach back in time and resurrect my browsing history stored in the Google Desktop Index.

How do I serve a .manifest file as "type text/cache-manifest" using Yahoo small business webhosting? I have created the manifest file and uploaded it to the server. I have declared the manifest file in the index.html, but I don't think the mime-type is recognized. Yahoo doesn't allow ht access files to be uploaded either. (I am trying to write my first web-app for the iPhone) Thanks for any guidance!

In a new essay on the film Cache
, Roger Ebert says he has discovered a "smoking gun" that may explain the film's mystery. He says it occurs at around 20:39 on the DVD. Can somebody with access to the DVD tell me what is there?
(For anybody who hasn't seen this film, Ebert's essay contains some spoilers--as (I hope!) will this thread.)

I did a Google search and came up with a link to a Craigslist posting, but the post is expired. Obviously, Google has the text of this because it shows me snippets of it in the search result list, but there is no "Cached" link for me to see it. How can I get this info out of Google or Craigslist? Or, alternatively, is there a website that has cached versions of Craigslist posts? The post in question is ten days old.

How can I recover my deleted Froogle list? I once had a lengthy (20-30 items?) shopping list on Froogle, here
. I pointed people to this list as recently as December and it was full then. It now appears the entire list is gone. The items for myself aren't that important (if I can't remember I want it, maybe I don't really need it), but I used the list to keep track of gift ideas for others, and I'd really like to recover those. I've searched for an older cache on the Wayback Machine, Google, and Yahoo, with no luck. And I can't find any means of contacting Google for help.

During the course of Hurricane Katrina, I updated a single entry at LiveJournal numerous times with stories of New Orleanians who rode out the hurricane. It was linked to both from a few comments in MetaFilter and also from BoingBoing and other sites. Unfortunately, a LJ bug truncated the first few entries of the post, and I need to find someone out there with a cached copy of my entry at http://insomnia.livejournal.com/599039.html ... can't find it on google or archive.org.
Anyone out there have a cache of this, or have any novel ideas on how to find such a cached entry?

fails: I'd like to research the development of news websites - specifically those established by traditional media companies (CNN, The New York Times, etc). While archive.org is a valuable resource, many of the sites I'd like to look at block the automated scripts (robots) that make archiving possible. What's more, some of the sites archived are woefully incomplete and are missing images, etc. Is there an alternative to archive.org or another resource that I might use? [more inside]
